Mark Twain has so funny and wise words about life and love.

Mark Twain was born under the name Samuel Langhorne Clemens, on November 30, 1935 in a town called Florida, Missouri. He was one of seven children, but only 4 of them lived past the age of 9.

When he was four years old, his family moved to a town called Hannibal, Missouri. It was a small town on the river, that served as the inspiration for the fictional town St. Petersburg in The Adventures of Tom Sawyer and Adventures of Huckleberry Finn.

His father, a lawyer and a Judge, died in 1847 when Twain was 11. When he turned 12, he left school to become an apprentice to a printer. A few years later he began to contribute some writings and comics to the Hannibal Journal. The Hannibal Journal was owned by his older brother, Orion.

When Mark Twain turned 18 years old, he began traveling all over the country and joined the International Typography Union.

All of this was supposed to lead him to success in his greatest aspiration: to be a steamboat pilot. He began got his license and began to work as what was referred to as a “cub pilot”. He eventually convinced his younger brother, Henry to come work with him. In 1953, there was an explosion in the boiler room, where Henry sustained many injuries that eventually led to his death a week later. Twain said that he had foreseen his brothers death in a dream and that lean him to study parapsychology, the study of paranormal and psychic activity.

After his brothers accident, Twain was filled with guilt, eventually causing him to quit piloting all together.

He eventually published The Guilded Age: A Tale of Today, his first attempt at a novel, also Twain’s only collaboration as he co-wrote it with Charels Dudley Warner.

His next major publication was the Adventures Of Tom Sawyer, which made him a household name. After that he went on to write The Prince and the Pauper, The Adventures of Huckelberry Finn, Life on the Mississippi, A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthurs Court, and many, many more.
